The top 20 players in the state got together for a boys and girls all-star game at Pepsi Center.
The boys game was Aurora vs. the state of Colorado. Not really, but all 7 Aurora based players were placed together on the Blue team and those guys hooked up for quite a few exciting highlights. The Blue team did win the all-star game and Aurora Central’s Carlton Hurst lead the way. He finished with 18 points and 6 rebounds and was named MVP. Hurst will play at Colorado State next year.
The Blue team also won the girls game. A couple of Regis Jesuit stars helped in a big way. Justine Hall had 11 points and Diani Akigbogun finished with 17. Akigbogun was named MVP. She, along with boys MVP, Hurst, had the honor of presenting the game ball at Saturday night Nuggets game against Houston.
